Top 7 Biggest Donald Trump Flip-Flops

5. Health Care

In 1999 and 2000, Trump expressed a staunch desire for the US to adopt universal healthcare. Trump stated, “If you can’t take care of your sick in the country, forget it, it’s all over. . .So I’m very liberal when it comes to health care. . .I believe in universal health care. I believe in whatever it takes to make people well and better.” Trump continued on to say, “I think it is. . .an entitlement to this country, and too bad the world can’t be, you know, in this country. But the fact is, it’s an entitlement to this country if we’re going to have a great country.”

It is unclear what Trump’s current plan is, but he has made his staunch opposition to ObamaCare well-known. He has suggested a market approach, saying in 2011 that, “Even if we elect a real president who will get tough and repeal Obamacare, we still need a plan to bring down health-care costs and make health-care insurance more affordable for everyone. It starts with increasing competition between insurance companies. Competition makes everything better and more affordable.”
